Day 2 recap - trying to cope

Sigh.....ripping up carpet is dirty work.  This morning as the light streamed in the window I saw a heavy film on the dining room table.  Couldn't resist leaving a little message before I wiped it up :) So Yesterday was Day 2 of reno and can be best summed up by the word chaos.  When I came home they were just leaving.  Living room was done (except for mouldings), Dining room only 75% done and the den and back nook not touched.  And they are not coming back until Monday so the mess and confusion lives on for a few more days.    I started to put the living room back together last night, mainly so I could use part of the kitchen again.  It's not bad.  It's a start.
I can't do anything else until they come back.  Miss Abby has struggled with the chaos.  She's gone to doggie daycare for 2 full days which she isn't used to.  The disruption in her routine has really affected her.  She clung to me Friday morning and whined if I left her sight.  On the drive to day care she whined so pitifully it broke my heart.  She wouldn't eat at day care or at all last night.  She finally ate tonight at supper and then brought me a toy.  So she's coming around now.  
She's testing out the new area rug.  I think she approves.

  2. The floors look great and that is a nice rug choice, really brings a nice design element to the room. Abby seems to be back to her old self, all she wanted was mommy time;)

  3. It's looking great and it won't last for ever.I knew it would be difficult for Abbey but she'll get over it. She's just a little confused because this is really not what she's used to.
    Hugs,

  9. Any home renovation ends up being more work, more money and more confusion than expected. Once it is all done then it will be worth it and your floor looks great! Abby will readjust and will be happy too. She already likes the new rug!
